Circus Circus

Firstly, thanks so much for all the supportive comments and e-mails i've received in response to my last post. i was anxious about sharing so much personal stuff here, but it turns out i needn't have been. It was a bit of relief to get it out there & i'll try to do honest posts more regularly, maybe once a month? i think a lot more people are struggling more then we ever realise, so remember to be careful with one another.

But now for happier things! Last summer, the circus came into town so She Who Must Not Be Named & i went along. i hadn't been to one since i was a kid so i was really excited.

Paper: Echo Park Paper, Crate Paper, Button & Ribbons: MME, Stickers: Sassafras, Crate Paper, Mist: Studio Calico, Maya Road, Punch: Martha Stewart, Banner: Pink Paislee, Embossing Powder: American Crafts.

This one mostly uses Studio Calico's Add-on Lollipop from February, plus the Crate exclusive stickers from the main kit and the Pink Paislee banners from April's main kit. i used some Zing! to emboss it. i wanted to use fun bright circusy products on this one, because my photos were black and white. Most venues are a bit weird about allowing SLR's into them so i just took a few pics on my iPhone, they're not the most amazing but in my opinion photos don't have to be perfect to capture the memory.

Some fun things coming up over the next week. Southsea Fest tomorrow. It's a local music festival and one of my favourite days of the year! i'm most looking forward to Matthew and the Atlas, Paper Aeroplanes and my favourite local bands The B of the Bang and The Dawn Chorus. i also just signed up for Amy Tan's class at Big Picture Classes, can't wait for that to start! Anyone else in?
